RIMINI SLIP ONS | BRUNO MAGLI

New York City is always a good Idea. There’s no place like it, especially during the spring season. During my recent trip to the Big Apple, I test drove the Rimini slip-on sneaker from Bruno Magli’s latest collection.  This summer staple is made up of a foil weave calf leather upper and a rubber cup outsole— so no need to worry about comfort or style since both are present.  Bruno Magli is a synonym of elegant design and impeccable craftsmanship, they’re made in Italy after all. The woven leather sneakers are super comfortable and are the right choice, especially if you’re planning on walking all over downtown, across the Brooklyn Bridge, and around Dumbo too.  They’re super versatile too– and can transition beautifully from a  city look to a resort ensemble while on vacation— plus they can be paired with denim, bermuda shorts, or chinos.  Summer style can be a bit bland when wearing solid linen tops and bermuda shorts on the daily.

For the golfing trip, I got to test drive the new Ted Baker Golf Collection. The sporty-yet-sophisticated collection consists of ombre prints, bold colors and ton of functional elements. The collection parts way from what golfing gear use to be, ill-fitting and prints and patterns that were outdated. The new TB collection is giving golf attire a new and more modern definition. These garments are smart with a modern fit and will improve your game. For my golfing adventure, I went with the Birdy Polo in blue and the PLAYGO polo in red. Both polos are made of stretch cotton for ease of movement, so, not only are you ready to play, but your style game is in check too. I paired my tops with The UNPAR trousers, which are full of innovative details. For starters they’re water-repellent, so in case there is an …
